Monday, July 25
Venus square Jupiter 8º42’. Moon enters Cancer.
Venus in Cancer square Jupiter in Aries

The moon enters Cancer.
At 19:53 the moon enters its home sign, Cancer. Tuesday, July 26, is going to be the money day, as the moon will aspect Jupiter, then Venus, a benefic enclosure between 13:35 and 16:54. The moon is going to try to heal some wounds too, since it is sextile Mars. Happy for the moon in Cancer!
Tuesday, July 26
Mercury square Mars 14º41’
Mercury in Leo clashes with Mars in Taurus.
At 21:13 Mercury clashes with Mars. Watch your mouth. Don’t go poking bruised egos, you just might catch some heat. Fighting words. Or, an ability to express things extremely quickly, aggressively.
Thursday, July 28
Moon enters Leo, new moon in Leo 05º39’, Jupiter retrograde 08º43’, Mercury square Uranus 18º38’.
The moon enters Leo.
At 08:35 the moon enters fixed sign Leo where there will be a new moon. Fixed moons are not the easiest times these days, since they are square to Mars, Uranus, and Saturn. These transits can be like a test of endurance, patience, and nerve.
New moon in Leo.
The new moon is exact at 19:55 beginning a new cycle in how we care for both ourselves and others. This is an opportune time to shamelessly recognize one’s own needs.
Jupiter retrograde begins in Aries.
At 22:37 Jupiter begins its retrograde in fire sign Aries. Along with the new moon in another fire sign, Leo, this can reflect a moment of reckoning for how our actions or lifestyles do— or don’t— align with what we believe in. Feel it.
Mercury in Leo squares off with Uranus in Taurus.
At 23:15 Mercury squares Uranus. Abrupt or surprising interactions are happening. Easter eggs are hiding in the fine print. Mercury is still very close to the sun (“combust" is the astrological term), so things are happening below the radar.
Saturday, July 30
The moon enters Virgo.
Moon in Virgo.
At 20:10 the moon enters earth sign Virgo. If you’re a Virgo moon, this is your monthly lunar return. Mutable moons are pretty tame and calm these days, however there is a lot of information to digest and process. Spend the weekend reflecting on words, purchases, conversations.
Sunday, July 31
Mercury opposite Saturn 22º58.
Mercury in Leo opposite Saturn in Aquarius.
At 08:05 Mercury faces off with serious Saturn. There can be some roadblocks stopping conversations from happening as quickly as they want to.
